Here's the video version of my DIYs:



DIY Embroidery Hoop Memo Board


DIY Embroidery Hoop Memo Board

The first DIY I'm going to show you how to make is a embroidery hoop memo board.

All you'll need is an embroidery hoop of any size, scissors, fabric, string, clothespins, and pictures.

You're going to need a embroidery hoop of any size.

Then you want to layout some fabric with any color or pattern and then you want to put your hoop on top of the fabric and cut a square around the hoop out of the fabric that's bigger than the hoop. The square doesn't have to be perfect.

After you're done cutting out your square, you want to go iron the fabric.

When you're done ironing your fabric you want to place the square on top of the inner embroidery hoop.

Then you want to take same string and you want to layout the string in many different directions. You can put as many pieces of string that you want onto it and make sure the string is longer than the hoop so you can pull the string later.

Now you can take the outer hoop and put it over the fabric, the string and the inner hoop.

Then you want to tighten the screw at the top and then you want to pull the string and the fabric as needed so the fabric and the string are tight in the hoop.

Now you can flip the hoop over and trim off the excess fabric.

The last thing you can do is that you want to glue the string onto the hoop so the string doesn't come out of the hoop and if you need to you can cut the extra string off.

When the memo board is done you can take some pictures or notes and put them onto the string with clothespins.

When you're done putting pictures or notes onto the board you can hang it up on a wall.


DIY Dreamcatcher


DIY Dreamcatcher

For the next DIY I'm going to show you how to make a dreamcatcher.

For the dreamcatcher you'll need a embroidery hoop of any size, yarn, scissors, a glue gun and anything you would like to put on the dreamcatcher like ribbon.

You want to use the inner hoop for this dreamcatcher but you can make another dreamcatcher out of the outer hoop if you want.

You want to take a piece of yarn and tie one end of the yarn to the hoop and make sure you leave a little bit extra yarn from the knot because you are going to use it later.

What you want to do is that you want to wrap the yarn all the way around the hoop like how I'm doing here. If you roll the yarn into ball it will be easier to wrap the yarn around the hoop.

Once you wrapped the yarn all the way around the hoop, you can cut off the yarn you don't need and then you can tie the yarn that you were wrapping with to the yarn you tied into a knot together into a knot.


Now you can tie one end of a another piece of yarn into a knot onto the hoop.

Then you want to take that yarn and make a loop and then you want to go around the hoop and then you want to pull yarn through the loop and tighten the loop. You want to do these same steps all the way around the hoop and make sure you space the loops out.


Once you've gone all the way around the hoop the first time you can do the same loops but you want to do the loops on the yarn and not on the hoop.

You'll do this everytime you go around the hoop and you can make as many rows that you want and you can stop making the web of the dreamcatcher when you like how it looks.

If you roll the yarn into a small ball it will be a lot more easier to make the dreamcatchers web.


When you're done making the web of the dreamcatcher you can cut off the yarn you don't need and then you want to tie the yarn at the place where you stopped at into a knot.

Then you can cut off any of the extra yarn.


Now you want to take another piece of yarn and tie into a loop and then into a knot. You want something like this and this is how the dreamcatcher will hang on a wall.


Now you can put anything that you want onto your dreamcatcher. I put some lace, beaded string, and feathers onto the dreamcatcher.

The way how I put the lace and the beaded string onto the dreamcatcher is by folding the lace or the beaded string in half. Then I put it under the hoop and then I pulled the tails of the lace or the string through the loop. You can do what I did or you can tie them onto the dreamcatcher instead.


Now you want to hang the dreamcatcher onto the wall and trim off anything you don't want with scissors.

If you want you can glue some feathers onto some string or onto whatever you have on your dreamcatcher.

Then you'll be done with the dreamcatcher and you can put it onto the wall.

DIY Embroidery Hoop Pocket


DIY Embroidery Hoop Pocket

For the last DIY I'm going to show you how to make a embroidery hoop pocket.For the last DIY I'll show you how to make a embroidery hoop pocket. For this DIY embroidery hoop pocket you'll need a embroidery hoop of any size and one or two colors of fabric.

You want to take an embroidery hoop that's any size and you want to put it over fabric that is any color or pattern and this will be behind the pocket.

Then you want to cut a square around the hoop and make sure it's bigger than the hoop. The square doesn't have to be perfect.

Now you want to layout another color or pattern of fabric that will be for your pocket and you want to put the first square over the fabric and you want to cut around the square to get an identical square. This square doesn't have to be perfect either.

After you're done cutting your squares you should have two squares and you need to go iron the squares.


When you're done ironing you want to place the square that will be in the back on top of the inner embroidery hoop.

Then you want to take the square you're using for the pocket and fold it in half.

Then you can place it over the first square and make sure the folded part is what will be in the hoop.

All you have to do now is that you want to take the outer hoop and put it onto the inner hoop. Then you can tighten the screw at the top and if you need to pull the fabric tight.

The last thing you have to do is that you want to flip the embroidery hoop over and cut off the excess fabric.

Then you'll be all done and you can put pens, pencils, or anything that you want into the pocket and you even put a picture onto the pocket with a clothespin.
